Smallish cocktail space outside the smaller banquet room at University Club. I don't think there will be need for amplification... ?
"Maria" (bride's name) from West Side Story
Judy played beautifully and her selections were spot on and well received. Set the perfect tone to begin the evening! She even included a request she wasn't previously familiar with and performed it flawlessly! Highly recommend!!!
Beautiful, personalized live music for wedding
Our experience working with Danielle as our wedding ceremony musician was a dream. We were able to give her a vague description of our welcome music (jazzy, summery, 1920s) and then very specific processional music (This Must Be The Place, Into The Mystic). The arrangements and the performance were fantastic. Beyond her skill, talent and creativity, I would recommend (and thank) Danielle for her flexibility, her professionalism, warmth, and presence. She worked seamlessly with our venue. She never missed a cue, her performance of each piece flowed beautifully. Getting married is stressful but working with Danielle was one of the easiest, best experiences we had working with a vendor.
We are pretty open but are huge music fans so some Beatles or Rolling Stones would be a wonderful touch but not a requirement.
Cocktail Hour at Stan Mansion (Wedding)
Andy played a 65 minute set during our cocktail hour. He played instrumental songs with a focus on The Beatles and Rolling Stones (per our request). Andy was playing as soon as our ceremony ended upstairs through the end of cocktail hour. His set flowed and we had multiple compliments about his playing. Thanks for being a part of our big day!
